ACORN's acclaimed small production (under 3,000 cases/year) of field blend, estate wines are unique expressions of the character and remarkable diversity of their historic Alegría Vineyards.
Located near Healdsburg, in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, ACORN wines are vineyard and vintage specific blends. Cabernet Franc, Dolcetto, Sangiovese, Axiom Syrah, and Heritage Vines Zinfandel are the primary wines produced.
Vineyard and winery owners Betsy & Bill Nachbaur are hands-on and passionate about preserving the tradition of field-blending and co-fermenting. ACORN's distinctive, well balanced, and memorable wines all include multiple grape varieties picked and co-fermented. The grapes are blended the day they are picked, as was done in the 1890's when the oldest portions of vineyard were first planted. Bill's passion and 25 years of active involvement, from pruning to bottling, are reflected in every bottle of ACORN wine.
Alegría means happiness and joy in Spanish, and it will make you happy to discover ACORN's field-blend wines made exclusively from their certified sustainable Alegria vineyards, where they grow 60+ grape varieties. The grapes are blended the day they are picked, as was done in the 1890's when the oldest portions of vineyard were first planted.
To experience the alegria of this special place, and to learn about field blending and co-fermenting, schedule an appointment for an informative private tasting, and possibly a vineyard tour.

Tasting appointments are required by our Sonoma County use permit. Although we can occasionally accommodate same day appointments, we appreciate you reaching out to us sooner so we can schedule a mutually workable time, and if you’d like, help you plan your visit to our area.
We suggest folks allow at least an hour for their tasting visit to ACORN. Groups larger than six require special arrangements.
Generally, tasting appointments are limited to one group at a time, and are scheduled back to back, so we really need to know if you are going to be late, or if your plans change. We often have to turn folks away, so knowing your plans, helps us to accommodate others who wish to visit, and to limit any impact on the appointment before or after you. We want all of our guests to have a wonderful experience.
Our tasting fee is $15 per person and charged at time of visit. One tasting fee is waived with each bottle purchased.
There is no tasting fee for ACORN Wine Club or Alegría Case Buyers' Club members and their guests or Ticket to the Wine Road visitors.
